Re: Need help with a mystery Battery Drain!
On a separate note....you mentioned no ground strap. Having proper grounds is vital to the electrical system 'playing nice'.
Picture a triangle of the body/frame, engine, and battery. Each should be grounded to the other two. Don't overlook nice clean connections & dielectric grease too.
That was one of the first lessons I learned on my first car. I had an Olds Omega with an Olds 455. Pulled into my friend's dad's welding shop. Went to leave and it cranked over real slow. He came out and pulled off the top mount battery terminals. He pointed to the grey and black junk on the terminals and battery posts and said, "these ALWAYS need to be shiny clean".
He cleaned them both up, put the terminals back on and it fired right up.
I guess that's enough of a tangent.
